NEW DELHI: The Delhi High Court on Wednesday sought a response from the Delhi government and the police on a PIL that has sought quashing of provisions of the Delhi Cattle Preservation Act that criminalises possession and consumption of beef in the city.
A division bench of Chief Justice G Rohini and Justice Sangita Dhingra Sehgal asked the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) government to file the response by December 8. The plea was filed on May 4.
The court was hearing a public interest litigation (PIL) filed by an NGO working for development of the Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes, saying the "right to eat the food of one's choice is an integral part of the right to life and liberty".
Communist Party of India (Marxist) general secretary Sitaram Yechury on Saturday demanded a complete ban on gauraksha samitis, or cow protection committees, saying they were terrorising Dalits and minority communities on the pretext of cow protection. He said the National Democratic Alliance government was permitting these vigilante groups to promote communalism and polarisation.
